Statement

 

I come from a country that suffers the consequences of colonialism, political corruption, dictatorship, devastation of natural resources, exploitation of human labor and discrimination toward Indigenous cultures. Therefore, art is for me a form of expression that has allowed me to get rid of these frustrations and has led me reveal them to the public. It is present in my work the role of the memory, history, emigration, ideology and personal experiences, which provides me the best insights of my praxis. I use auto-ethnography, parallelism and metaphor as main methodologies, investigating -from the perspective of the Global South- ideas related to post-colonialism, hyper-society, syncretism, post-ontology and new identities created by the multiculturalism of the World. My work is based on different means of abstraction for the chosen theme-concept, including a combination of media through installations of: video, sound, performance, sculptural objects, interactivity or photography. I explore and experiment with the means of movement, transition, displacement, change, impermanent and invisible, while touching boundaries between reality and fiction.
